Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi on Monday denounced attack on Saudi Arabian embassy in Tehran and advised people and officials to prevent repetition of such costly measures, IRNA reported.

Execution of prominent Saudi cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr is an unforgettable event, he said and prayed the Almighty to uproot those seeking to weaken Islam and Quran.

Saudi Arabia has failed in its regional policies and wishes to avenge its defeats, he said.

Bombardment of Yemen is a futile attempt, he said, adding that they seek to avenge their defeats in Syria, Yemen and Iraq but should bear in their mind that execution of the innocent cleric was a big sin with grave consequences, he said

The whole world has condemned the execution except the US which has only expressed concern about the issue, he said.
